Duchess of Cambridge doesn’t want a perfect smile

Mon

Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, has had orthodontic treatment to give her teeth the appearance of ‘harmonious asymmetry’, it has been revealed. The 29-year-old was anxious to avoid the over-stylised look of the Hollywood smile, and went to London—based French dentist Didier Fillion, to request a more natural look.

Associate of Dr Fillion, Bernard Touati, told The Times magazine that Kate’s teeth look so good because they are not perfectly straight, which is what often makes celebrity smiles look artificial. He said that Dr Fillion had done some ‘little micro-rotations on Kate Middleton, so that it looks like a natural, healthy smile.’

Instead of just adding veneers over the top, the process involves using braces to subtly change the positioning of the teeth, or re-shaping them to make them look natural – even adding veneers with small chips in them. Dr Fillion said; ‘Teeth that look like piano keys are not good, so we try to give back some details, maybe a space we don’t close, or a shorter incisor. Tom Cruise? Too perfect for me. After my treatment, most of my patients do not need veneers.’

When questioned over his treatment of the Duchess, Dr Fillion refused to comment, saying ‘I can’t say anything. I am sorry. I can’t confirm or deny it.’ According to his colleague Dr Touati, Kate could have paid around £3,000 for the treatment.

Orthodontist extols virtues of cosmetic dentistryOrthodontist Dr Didier Fillion has extolled the virtues of cosmetic dentistry when it comes to achieving the perfect smile.

French-born Dr Fillion, whose high-profile patients include future queen Kate Middleton, said there are many treatments and procedures available for people eager to improve their confidence with a winning smile.

"We can always improve how people look," he told the Evening Standard. "We can always improve how people look.

"The goal is to create the most beautiful smile possible. Society judges us by appearance. If it's a choice between two people, one with a nice smile and the other with an ugly one, well."

Dr Fillion, who shares the London Lingual Orthodontic Clinic with Dr Asif Chatoo, is known for this invisible braces technique and has also pioneered 3D digital technology to enable patients to design their own smiles.

The 3D technique allows the brackets of the brace to be placed in the exact position they need to be on each tooth. ADNFCR-2621-ID-800513397-ADNFCR
